This definitely isn't the syndication print. At least I am pretty sure it isn't. This was a tape or Kinescope of an early broadcast, could have been an early rerun, but it doesn't look like a syndication print. One giveaway is the runtime. They were 25 minutes, another is the Tonto opening line (missing in syndication prints) and the original beginning footage of the Lone Ranger riding (later airings use a B&W version of the season 5 opening ride that is identical, but is not as far away a shot). Interesting to see this.

The Lone Ranger
The Lone Ranger, one of my favorite of the old time cowboy stars, takes me back to simpler times when right was right, and wrong was something we did not do.
The Lone Ranger stands for justice, right and clean living. While some of the episodes might be considered somewhat outdated, I do not believe that good behavior and justice ever go out of style.
"Cannonball McKay" is well worth the time investing to watch.
